In his keynote address at the recent 2014 EWC/EWCA International Conference in Okinawa, Center President Charles E. Morrison spoke of an East-West Center that now needs to look ahead and consider its course forward - a future that he said "will not be determined by one person, but by many voices – our voices, and those of our friends, supporters, stakeholders and even critics." More than 300 EWC alumni, friends and colleagues gathered at the conference Sept. 17-19. (View a photo gallery.)
